    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    It is really disheartening to land punches at will, with authority, and still have the bastard keep coming.

    After he's taken everything you've got, what's left? It's a tough moment for a fighter to deal with. Good fighters need this kind of opponent to grow. Cotto will be back.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    A fantastic fight, best I've seen in some time.

    Cotto looked unbeatable in the early rounds and outclassed Margarito but Margarito just kept coming forward and started to find the shots and just outwilled Cotto. I'm so gald I caught it without spoilers.

    Perhaps you should watch Edwin Rosario v Julio Cesar Chavez (coming up a Division).

    Ali v Cleveland Williams (a very dangerous puncher at the time).

    Ali v Frazier III (The Thrilla in Manila).

    Any Sugar Ray Robinson. The Brilliant elusiveness of Ken Buchanan v Donato Paduano, Carlos Ortiz, Carlos Hernandez.

    Steve Robinson v Naseem Hamed (challenging for a title when his ego was just containable)

    Nigel Benn v Michael Watson (brilliant strategy and Tremendous Heart by Michael).

    I'm going for a mix of the known and less well known (in the US).

    Be amazed.

    Any Ward/Gatti fight. Insane brawls.

    i really disliked watching boxing until i started training it. Then i realized how insane some of the moves they pull off are and it has gotten a lot more interesting. Moving while throwing a counter hook and slipping two shots? no biggie until you try it yourself and take both the punches from a slower opponent and don't land your hook.

    Second the video link please, would really like to watch this one.

    Agreed. Absolutely.

    As the commentator said for the 10th Round of the 3rd Fight: "...the 30th Round".

    Arturo had developed from a Banger to a skilled boxer and the latter was most apparent in all his bouts with Mickey.

    Mickey had taken the WBO title by stopping Shea Neary "The Irish Express", who was unbeaten, in a terrific contest.

    Ward-Gatti; a great trilogy.

    Regrets about the link but consider Sugar Ray Robinson; he could KO his opponent with either hand while going backwards. Just try it.

    In his fight with Gene Fullmer (a very tough brawler) he went Right Hand Crazy (as the term has it) and then KO'd Fullmer with a Single Left Hook. Genius.

    Bloody oath, I have a big poster of Sugar Ray on my wall. The timing, weight changing and distance issues with throwing punches while going backwards makes landing a semi decent hit hard and a knockout pretty much impossible. But this is Sugar Ray we're talking about so he could probably knock someone out with the water sprinkler dance move.
